Dr. Craig Ellison

I don't know how I can ever explain to the staff at the office of Dr. Ellison, how much everyone has made my life wonderful in a way you might not think about.  To me, everyone at Dr. Ellison's office has been patient, kind, thoughtful and always I feel go above and beyond for myself.  You all mean a lot to me.

Thank you, 


I saw an advertisement for Dr. Ellison on City Smart. It was a great deal and ILori_Keller.jpg needed to see a chiropractor. I was suffering with neck pain and couldn't look up. My pain had been around for a couple of years and was getting worse. Massage and exercise helped some, but were "band-aiding" the pain. It was time to take care of the problem.

I experienced immediate relief after my first adjustment. It has been wonderful being able to take a shower without pain. I can tilt my head back to wash my hair now. I came to see Dr. Ellison for my neck pain but was surprised to learn that he could also help me with my ankle pain. My ankle had been swollen for a couple of years from a roller-skating injury. The swelling went down almost instantly after an ankle adjustment. I am able to run again.

Dr. Ellison is very knowledgeable and his staff is very friendly. He remembers his patients and what is going on in their lives. I have had the pleasure of referring Dr. Ellison to family and friends and am happy to say that both of my daughters enjoy coming to see him as well.

Cassens.jpgHi!  I am Michaela.  The Baby Place referred me to Ellison Family Chiropractic during my second pregnancy.  I was experiencing severe pain on my left side and in my left hip at the end of my first trimester.  I had difficulty walking and was told not to pick up my son Thomas.  I tried exercising and stretching before seeing Dr. Ellison, but neither helped the pain.  Within one month of starting care, I began to notice an improvement in my condition.  I was able to exercise easier and could sit on the floor to play with my son without low back pain. I also realized that I wasn't getting sick as often and if I did, it didn't last as long.  I have felt better than I ever have in my entire life.  I made a decision to have my son checked because he could not run without falling.  Thomas walks straighter, runs better and now participates in activities.  My daughter was checked after her birth and the three of us now see Dr. Ellison regularly for wellness care.  The girls at Dr. Ellison's office are very welcoming.  My kids are accepted here and we are all very comfortable.


I came to see Dr. Ellison after 6 months of suffering with severe low back pain. The simplest day to day things were difficult, such as getting out of bed, driving and working. But the most devastating thing was not being able to play with or pick up my 3 year old son. A couple of friends from work referred me to Dr. Ellison when the pain became so bad I could not work out with them. After about 1 week of care, I noticed I could get out of bed easier. Now I am able to play with my son for more than 2 minutes at a time. I also realized that I have not been sick and I usually get sick every winter.

I like coming to see Dr. Ellison because I feel welcomed and at ease. It doesn't feel like an "office". The best thing I have heard since beginning care is when my sister said, "Oh, you can walk straight again!"

My kids and myself are patients of Dr. Ellison. During one of my pregnancies, I began getting migraine headaches, something I had never experienced before. A friend referred me to his office and I just knew this was what I needed so I scheduled an appointment. I noticed an immediate improvement after my first adjustment. With regular adjustments, not only did I have relief from the migraines, I found that I also had less colds. 

During my most recent pregnancy, I was in an auto accident and was treated by Dr. Ellison. I recovered from the accident quickly and delivered my daughter naturally and without complications. Dr. Ellison's office is the first stop when my family is sick or when my kids have sports injuries. We also see Dr. Ellison for preventative care and health maintenance. Ellison Family Chiropractic genuinely cares for families. They are kind, supportive and flexible. I have been happy to refer family and friends to him over the years. 


Jesse_Miller.jpg I had suffered with migraine headaches for 2 years. It was to the point that I had constant pain, all day, every day. I had seen a neurologist, had cortisone shots and taken pain relievers. Additionally, MRI's and CT scans were taken. At one point the neurologist thought it was heart related, but it wasn't. I came to see Dr. Ellison when a family friend of mine and patient of Dr. Ellison recommended I schedule an appointment. While under corrective care, I noticed a significant decrease in the frequency and severity of my headaches. After about 1 year, my headaches were gone! I am able to enjoy life again! Snowboarding and sports were once a thing of the past, but with Dr. Ellison's help, I live life to the fullest again.

I am quite impressed and even intrigued by Dr. Ellison's methods. Even though I am a former Army medic and EMT (among other things) I still believe in Chiropractic! I have found better, faster recovery from headaches, stiff necks, and other stuff than I have ever had from regular medicine. Yes, me, a medical provider, loving Chiropractic! It just makes sense! Better health, no medications and faster recovery. However, as a medic, I am the one you want at a car accident, sports injury, but then, I will tell you that after that Doc is done, GO SEE Dr. Ellison!!

Stephanie_Hall_Pic.jpgHi, my name is Stephanie. I found out about Dr. Ellison from my best friend Becky. She invited me to Dinner with the Doc; an event which Dr. Ellison hosts to educate people on the benefits of chiropractic care. I had been suffering from chronic headaches and overall had very low energy for about 5 months due to a hectic and stressful schedule. I was using Ibuprofen or Excedrin to relieve the pain, but I was still consistently getting headaches at least once a month. Within one week of accepting care from Dr. Ellison, I began to notice an improvement. I was able to handle my last semester of Grad School with no migraines! I not only liked the treatment I was receiving, I also like that Dr. Ellison took time to get to know me not only as a patient, but as a person. I look forward to getting my adjustments and I can't stop telling people how good I feel and the great benefits chiropractic has to offer.

Hi wonderful miracle workers!!!

You saw Harmoni literally at the very last minute one night. When I called and asked how long you were there, she was howling, crying and ready to revisit her lunch from earlier.  After she left your office, Harmoni was happy, not nauseous, matter of fact, as if nothing was ever wrong!

THANK YOU        THANK YOU         THANK YOU!!!!!!

You have done more for her headache in the few minutes you saw her, than have ever been experienced at the emergency room, with hours of waiting and wondering. Harmoni came home, and wanted to eat, which she would not do when I first called.

Again, thanks for your craft!


Hi, my name is Katie. I began seeing Dr. Ellison because my parents had been patients of his for years. I was very skeptical of chiropractors, but I had a neck injury that needed care so I decided to give it a try. I had previously tried muscle stimulation, which loosened up the muscles, but I was still in pain. I was also taking painkillers. About 2 weeks after accepting care, I was confident that my neck pain would not return. I felt great!

I have also noticed that since beginning chiropractic care, I do not suffer from bladder infections like I once did. In the past, I would have monthly and bi-monthly infections. I have had only one since I started seeing Dr. Ellison. I look forward to going to the chiropractor because the staff is so nice, the hours are convenient and because it works!!

Stevie_Grill3.JPGMy name is Marie, and I brought my son Stevie to Dr. Ellison because he has had asthma since he was 6 months old. Stevie is now 6 years old and has been on multiple medications including an inhaler, nebulizer and Zyrtec. I had heard success stories of chiropractic helping with asthma and decided to give it a try. Within a couple of weeks of starting care, Stevie was weaned off of his nebulizer and has discontinued use. Stevie is able to play soccer, ride his bike and jump on the trampoline. He can be a kid with no worries now. I love that Dr. Ellison is flexible and that walk-ins are welcome. People are amazed that Stevie is active and not wheezing.

Hi, my name is MaryAnn.  I first found out about Dr. Ellison after reading about him in the newspaper.  I then saw a sign out in front of his office one day when I was driving by.  I decided to stop, and although they were closed, I was still able to get help.  Everyday that Dr. Ellison adjusts me, I feel great.  One time, I could hardly get out of bed because the pain was so severe.  I was adjusted by the doctor and was pain free when I left the office.

I have also experienced some unexpected benefits from chiropractic.  I have not had a cold since beginning care and I feel younger.  Ellison Family Chiropractic is just like family.  I think of Dr. Ellison like he is my son.  Too many people think surgery is the answer to their problems.  They should give chiropractic a try first!

Hello. My name is Kim Dunn and it is my absolute pleasure to share my family's testimonial in regards to the care we have received at Ellison Family Chiropractic. I have a very specific success story to share. Please forgive the length of this, but in order for others to appreciate our gratefulness, you have to understand the severity of where we came from. Our son, Trevor, who is our oldest, had a life-threatening tumor in his spinal cord when he was two years old. At that time Trevor suffered greatly on the left side of his body, there was significant nerve damage caused by the tumor and the surgery to remove it. As a result, Trevor's left side of his body did not grow at the same rate as his right, his left leg was literally getting shorter than his right leg by 1/8 of an inch EACH year. This may not sound like a lot, but by the time Trevor was 7 years old he had 5/8 of an inch difference in his legs and was looking at having several operations that would stop his right leg from growing so that he could function normally. In addition to the difference in growth, he also suffered from Horner's Syndrome on his left side which has several symptoms, the most severe for a young boy being anhidrosis (decreased sweating on the affected side, which causes an elevated risk of heat stroke). After we met with Trevor's neurosurgeon and his orthopedic surgeon when Trevor was 7 years old and they informed us that his nerve damage was permanent and multiple surgeries would be his only option for maintaining his ability to walk, we made the decision that we would put Trev through a full chiropractic series with Dr. Ellison, just to see what might happen. The results were absolutely amazing and a miracle for our family. Trevor's body responded quickly and dramatically to the adjustments. Trevor's left leg now grows at the same rate as his right leg, and has done so for the last two years, and as long as it continues to do so he will not need any surgeries. To me, the most stunning thing that happened was that Trevor began sweating on his left side, for six years he had not sweat at all on his left side, which is dangerous because it is how the body cools it's self. And we had been told several times over, by numerous specialists that this was a permanent condition. HA! Little did they know that we believe in the self-healing powers of the body and chiropractic care literally "empowers" your body to do what it needs to do. 

Trevor's story is dramatic and life changing, however, I could share example after example of the many times Dr. Ellison's adjustments have brought about self-healing in our bodies. My husband suffered years from shoulder pain that limited him physically, after one chiropractic series his pain was gone and has never returned. Our middle daughter was having flu-like symptoms and after a chiropractic adjustment her symptoms cleared out within 24 hours. Our baby girl started on chiropractic care within four days of being born and she is so very healthy and strong. She is slightly prone to ear infections, and I take her in to Dr. Ellison to have her adjusted as soon as I see the symptoms of one coming on and it clears out quickly. We use chiropractic as a part of our wellness, and we are routinely adjusted by Dr. Ellison. I could go on and on about the benefits we have experienced due to the chiropractic care that my family has received from Dr. Ellison. Dr. Ellison has taken the time to personally know our family and he understands our concerns and our lifestyle and he cares for us accordingly.
